    After an adventurous season spent excavating at Dahshoor, and narrowly averting the clutches of the Master Criminal, Victorian Egyptologist Amelia Peabody Emerson and her spouse prepare for a quiet summer in England. The social and domestic routine, though interrupted by the precocious escapades of their only child, Ramses, hardly seems much of a challenge for the indomitable Emersons.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    This is the 5th book in the Amelia Peabody Series that I have listened to, and have never felt compelled to write a review. I do so now, because I am always so entertained on each and every book. I love the character, Amelia, as she writes in her journal and told in the first person by the VERY talented Barbara Rosenblat. Her voices for each of the characters is just great!

    The writing is so funny. The sexual innuendo between Amelia and her husband is charming and amusing, as is the competitive nature between the spouses as they attempt to outwit the bad guys.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Of course Amelia. A progressive woman in the Victorian era who does it her way. Always strong, always opinionated and always ready to admit her errors (but never to her husband, just to you "dear reader").

    But of course I love her blustering husband, as well, and their son Ramses is now coming into his own in assisting the crime solving duo.


    Have you listened to any of Barbara Rosenblat’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Excellent! Don't know her background, but she must be a stage actress. She makes the story come alive.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    ?


    Any additional comments?

    Would recommend listening to them all starting with book 1. Each book is written as a serial and adds to the overall story line and relationship between Amelia and her husband.
